Abstract:
Over two hundred years ago the Helms family settled in North Carolina. They began making home furnishings in a distinctive style. This continued up until 1953, when Lester \"Leck\" Helms started Ma Leck Woodcrafts of Wingate as a way to earn a little extra money. What resulted was a booming business. Today 1,500 wood products are sold by 10,000 retailers in 50 states. Sales hit $8.5 million in 1978, with $10 million projected for 1979.
